Theoden: *brings Wynnie over to play with Melkor and sets them both free in the lawn*
Eowyn: Hi Theo.
Theoden: *shows her his egg*
Eowyn: Nice. Where'd you get that?
Theoden: Really truly
Eowyn: Maglor wasn't dangerous enough for you?
Theoden: He's not like her at all
Eowyn: Mmm. Where do you think she got it from?
Theoden: her forced transformation into a woman?
Eowyn: Oh, that. Yeah, there's that. But that kind of craziness doesn't spring from nowhere.
Theoden: No, I mean, I've been reading the history books. Maglor was apparently the really calm nice one before that.
Theoden: I think it was the transformation
Eowyn: Oh, sure.
Theoden: And he really is very handsome
Eowyn: Please don't get killed. I'm quite fond of you.
Theoden: I like you too. I promise not to let anyone kill me
Eowyn: *nods* Okay.
Theoden: And all he's done is pet my hair. Not exactly a declaration of anything
Theoden: Of course, the only other person who does that to me is Noni
Eowyn: Um, hardly indicative of interest.
Theoden: Who's been starting it again lately
Eowyn: Oh no. Why?
Theoden: It's like my options are be awful to her or be badtouched by her
Eowyn: She needs medication.
Theoden: And what would you prescribe?
Eowyn: I don't even know. Perhaps she just needs someone of her own.
Theoden: She had that princess and then she went after that elf and it hasn't helped.
Eowyn: I know I've said it before, but it really might help if you two stayed away from each other.
Theoden: *frowns* I don't want to move away from Wynnie and Burgie
Eowyn: Well, then. I guess you put up with Noni.
Theoden: Or SHE moves out
Eowyn: I don't see her doing that.
Theoden: I may need a rape whistle
Eowyn: Well, I don't see her doing THAT either
Theoden: Her or the cat, man
Eowyn: *laughs* You and that cat.
Theoden: I just don't trust it. No animal should spend that much time licking my nose until I wake up
Eowyn: It might want you for dinner, not raping.
Theoden: You gotta look it in the eyes
Eowyn: I'll pass, thanks. I've got enough to deal with with the monkey.
Theoden: Where did she get a monkey?
Eowyn: Varda, I believe.
Eowyn: I... have no idea.
Theoden: Maybe she is Melkor
Eowyn: I...maybe? *considers* No.
Eowyn: I mean, if she was...
Theoden: ...my nightmares just got a new, weirder face?
Eowyn: I wouldn't know what to do.
Eowyn: *shakes her head* Oh, Theo.
Eowyn: If she's really Melkor?
Theoden: Well, that'd be the first think I'd think of.
Eowyn: I'll consider it.
Theoden: I mean, what else could you do?
Eowyn: If she was ACTUALLY Melkor?
Eowyn: Well, she's not.
Theoden: I wonder if Wynnie's a good influence on her
Eowyn: I hope so.
Theoden: *peers out the window at them* They seem to be pretending they're dragons
Eowyn: Melly doesn't have matches again, does she?
Theoden: No, but she's hoarding a pile of leaves
Theoden: Aren't those slug-covered by now?
Theoden: Oh, gross
Eowyn: *laughs* Want to call them in? I have cupcakes.
Theoden: *goes to fetch them* I get cupcakes too, right?
Eowyn: If you're good.
Theoden: I am an angel
Eowyn: Oh, indeed. *smiles and goes to get the cupcakes*
Theoden: *discreetly goes to throw a slug outside*
Eowyn: *puts the cupcakes on the table*
Theoden: *washes his hands and grabs one* Mine now.
Eowyn: Bring some to the girls.
Theoden: *pouts and does so*
Eowyn: *smiles and eats her cupcake*
Theoden: *chatters about being a guard*
Eowyn: So, you're a guard AND a knight?
Theoden: Yeah. It seemed like a good way to wiggle out of investigating Maglor stuff all the time
Eowyn: Does it work?
Theoden: So far, yes.
Theoden: My boss for the guard stuff is her boyfriend, which means he's unlikely to send me after her
Eowyn: Oh, well. That's a relief, I'm sure.
Theoden: I know.
Eowyn: You don't think she's still going to hurt you.
Theoden: It doesn't help people keep constantly warning me to stay away from her
Eowyn: Tell me about it. But yes, it can be nervewracking.
Theoden: Do *you* think it's in my best interests to maybe keep my distance?
Eowyn: Could be. I haven't seen her for a quite a while now. But she seemed a little more ... settled last time I did.
Eowyn: It's up to you if you want to try.
Theoden: I like that I got money last time
Theoden: *looks out the window* It's getting kind of late. Is it okay if I leave Wynnie with you and go off to do some work?
Eowyn: No problem. Good luck with work.
Theoden: Thanks. *snags another cupcake* See you when I come to retrieve my tiny person. *heads out*
